Learning spaces. Virtual spaces. Physical spaces. - Ewan McIntosh | Digital Media & Lea... - 0 views

    "I'm delivering the opening keynote for Edinburgh University's IT Futures Conference today and was asked to deliver an expanded version of the work I've been doing on the physical spaces of learning, and how they transgress virtual learning spaces, too. The theme of the conference is fascinating, and a conversation I'd like to see happening more regularly in more schools:

    It will look at both the staff and student perspective of what the working space is, and is becoming. Where does technology fit in, and how do we work and study in this increasingly mobile world?"

ePioneers | The University of Nottingham - 0 views

    "ePioneers is a new approach to e-learning adoption, based on mentoring of 'quick gain' projects, with individual and School-wide outcomes. It offers a way to move e-learning beyond early adopters and into the mainstream.

    Through 23 video conversations, and supported by 29 documents, 11 School of Education staff offer a balanced view of e-learning adoption …"
    A new approach to e-learning adoption based on mentoring of quick gain projects
  • Check this one out in particular - I like the way it highlights the common misconception that there are just a couple of innovators in each person's 'sphere'; it reminded me of the plan you had about the 'go to' survey.

UMUC-Verizon Virtual Resource Site -- Module 1: Teaching/Learning Strategies - 0 views

    Teaching/Learning Activities
    What do you want to use technology for?

    To help you answer this question, we've outlined some teaching/learning activities below that are used across the disciplines and tried to suggest through examples from the Web how each might utilize a certain kind of technology or a combination of different technologies to accomplish specific learning objectives. Each example represents a different discipline, and there are over 40 disciplines represented in the examples.

    Each example is associated with one or more interactive tool, and information about each kind of technology-what it is and how to use it-appears in the technologies section.

Dave's Educational Blog - 0 views

    "This is a moodle book I've put together to give people an introduction to open learning at UPEI… It still needs some work… but there it is.

    This topic considers the concept open learning and explores how being open as an educator can increase the chances for collaboration, access to knowledge and promote lifelong learning in students."

Transforming curriculum delivery through technology : JISC - 0 views

    "Following on from the publication of the Leitch Review of Skills5 and the publication of the Government's World Class Skills implementation plan6 institutions are no longer expected to simply prepare graduates for a world of work, but to continuously support the learning and professional development of working people. It is therefore important for institutions to develop more flexible and creative models of delivery in order to support the development of autonomous, lifelong learners who are skilled in reflecting on their learning (both formal and informal) and planning for their personal, educational and professional development. This programme aims to stimulate change, working towards this vision. "

Deliberations - 0 views

    "A definition for the term Personal Learning Environment (PLE), remains elusive. Conception about what should constitute a PLE depends on the perspective of the commentator. For example, the priorities for a PLE are different for a tertiary student, a university administrator, an instructor, a working professional, or an adult who persues an eclectic path of lifelong learning. Metaphorically, an individual may engage in a learning process that is either more acquisitional or participatory (Sfard, 1998). There are inconsistencies across these positions about what a PLE should do. But whether constructively and defensively, interest in PLE appears to be growing.

    At the time of writing this introduction (August 2006), no particular product or service exists that can definitively be categorised as a PLE, although some prototypical work is in progress. An inclusive, authoritative account about PLEs does not yet exist. Only a handful of articles have appeared in the academic and public press about PLEs since the term gained currency in 2004. This article has been compiled after tracking recent conversations in the blogosphere and following social bookmarks. "

New structures of learning: The systemic impact of connective knowledge, connectivism, ... - 0 views

    Since Illich's 1970 vision of learning webs, society has moved progressively closer to a networked world where content and conversations are continually at our finger tips and instruction and learning are not centered on the educator. The last decade of technological innovation - mobile phones, social media, software agents - has created new opportunities for learners. Learners are capable of forming global learning networks, creating permeable classroom walls. While networks have altered much of society, teaching, and learning, systemic change has been minimal. This presentation will explore how potential systemic responses leverage the transformative potential of connective knowledge and networked learning.

All Things in Moderation - E-moderating, 2nd edition - 0 views

    All Things in Moderation | E-moderating | 5 stage model
    The 5 stage model

    This model, how it was researched and developed, is explained in much more detail in chapter 2 of the book. Here's a summary: Individual access and the ability of participants to use CMC are essential prerequisites for conference participation (stage one, at the base of the flights of steps). Stage two involves individual participants establishing their online identities and then finding others with whom to interact. At stage three, participants give information relevant to the course to each other. Up to and including stage three, a form of co-operation occurs, i.e. support for each person's goals. At stage four, course-related group discussions occur and the interaction becomes more collaborative. The communication depends on the establishment of common understandings. At stage five, participants look for more benefits from the system to help them achieve personal goals, explore how to integrate CMC into other forms of learning and reflect on the learning processes.

    Each stage requires participants to master certain technical skills (shown in the bottom left of each step). Each stage calls for different e-moderating skills (shown on the right top of each step). The "interactivity bar" running along the right of the flight of steps suggests the intensity of interactivity that you can expect between the participants at each stage. At first, at stage one, they interact only with one or two others. After stage two, the numbers of others with whom they interact, and the frequency, gradually increases, although stage five often results in a return to more individual pursuits."

    "Using technology to improve the cost-effectiveness of the academy: Part 1
    By Tony Bates, on October 10th, 2009

    Is e-learning failing in higher education?

    In previous blogs, I have discussed whether e-learning is failing in higher education. To answer the question, I have examined the expectations or goals for e-learning, and whether they are being achieved.

    Finally, I come to the last goal or expectation: that e-learning will increase the cost-effectiveness of higher education. I will argue that this is the most important and valuable of all the goals for e-learning, but is the one that is furthest from being achieved."
    Tony Bates reckons these ideas won't 'sell' in most conventional universities... "which is why I think we need new universities that start from scratch"... I'm wondering what he actually *means* by 'start from scratch'...?! There's some interesting comments accompanying this post about what role 'traditional universities' will take in the future.

    George Siemens brings us back to earth a bit with his comments on Tony's vision...

    I think it's great to have a vision, but we all need to identify what we personally - and others - need to do to make parts of that vision real, and go ahead and do it.

    "Using technology to improve the cost-effectiveness of the academy: Part 2
    By Tony Bates, on October 14th, 2009

    Identifying the problem with higher education in the 21st was the easy part (Using technology to improve the cost-effectiveness of the academy: Part 1). Much more difficult is finding solutions to the problem.

    Summary of the problem

    In Part 1, I argued that the challenge for universities today is that

    * student numbers have increased dramatically,
    * students are much more varied in abilities, age, and culture,
    * quality of teaching, as expressed in overlarge classes, as a result has dropped and continues to drop, despite the addition of technology
    * the cost per graduate is increasing
    * the teaching and organizational models though have not changed fundamentally to adapt to these other changes."
